I have noticed people in the digital marketing industry love to network and socialize! Well this conference had plenty of networking opportunities and a big thank you to Bernadette Coleman and Lissa Duty for having an onsite happy hour for their guests, speakers and their team!

This was the first time I’ve attended a digital marketing conference. I loved the comradery and culture everyone shared. My favorite part of the Rocks Digital Conference was knowing how much knowledge was being shared with others and the amount of fun and excitement you can have all at the same time!

The Calm AFTER The Storm

The busy chaos that goes into planning and organizing a HUGE digital marketing conference gets overcome by the feeling of knowing that your guests are having a great time at the event you helped put together. Knowing that all your hard work has paid off is just the best, indescribable feeling in the world! For all of those that missed out this year, I encourage you to mark your calendar for next year’s conference on June 29 and June 30! Hope to see you next year!

These are just a few of the highlights from the #RocksDigital 2015 Conference. Comment below your favorite moments!
